Not Me Monday - 2nd edition

Hmmm....Where do I start?
With a week like this, I was sure to have many "not me" moments.
Here are the ones I can remember through the haze of exhaustion:

I did not make my kids watch the first half of the same movie three times because I was too lazy to chapter select every time we got back in the car from Friday's Crazy Errand Day.

I did not glare at a very pregnant woman who was smoking outside McDonald's.

I did not proceed down a closed street despite the fact that I had no idea if it was a one way or not when I got lost in downtown Minneapolis on Friday.

I did not spell H.A.M.M.O.C.K for the salesman at the store so Sam wouldn't know what he's getting for his birthday only to have the salesman pause, then say the word out loud.

I do not have 10,063 emails in my inbox because I'm too lazy to unsubscribe from Freecycle or delete the tons of listings I get every day.

I do not feel like I've been run over by a truck just because I had a wedding and a senior portrait session in one day. Nope. That would only remind me that I'm completely out of shape and haven't exercised regularly in over a year.

I did not have to pick up a used maxi pad off the floor in the woman's bathroom when I locked up the park Saturday night.

My grandma did not use a paper bag to store my wedding dress for a month before giving it to me the other day.

I did not consider scrapping my Boundary Waters trip because I'm petrified of not being reachable in case of an emergency with the kids.

I did not cry when the dog ate all but 5 slices of a brand new package of cheese on Wednesday.

  1. I love your blog... I totally love the Not Me! Monday response about spelling Hammock for the salesperson. We have to spell all kinds of words around here such as "bath" "outside" "snack" know, things you don't want them to understand until it is really ready time to go outside or have a snack or that bath time is next. You hate to get them too excited until it is actually that time.

  2. I love your blog as well - Your pictures are beautiful. :o)
